Fast food workers call for $15 an hour: We here at IHTM have no interest in judging anyone for the life choices they’ve made . . . that is until they expect us to pay for them. Which is why we must say that while we sympathize with those trying to make it on a burger flipper’s salary, we see no reason why we should subsidize them beyond their skill’s worth by bearing yet another cost of living increase.

Crowley, you stupid fuck!
Let me explain something to you.
I have employees that take home more money a week than I do.
If you had the slightest comprehension of what a small business has to do to compete in the marketplace, what the expenses are like when you run a business, and just how thin your profit margins are, you would shut up and go sit in a corner twiddling your thumbs.
Now go fuck yourself.

Exactly… exactly. The only way is for EVERYONE ELSE to essentially get a serious pay raise. We will have to become Switzerland (if I am not mistaken) where waiters make 50 to 80 grand a year, but that means $30 for a small plate of pasta or $15 for a cup of hot chocolate, $5000 monthly rent on apartments and homes STARTING at one million to buy. I have no idea how you get to high salaries ACROSS THE BOARD, but that does mean high prices on EVERYTHING that really and truly shouldnt cost that much.

What the hell do you know about corporate greed? Have you ever even worked for anyone? Aside from a short term gig as a census taker? You piss and whine about corporate greed on here all the time yet you are a welfare recipient therby not only being a total drain on society but pissing on all the good people who post here who bust their asses making a living for themselves and their families without relying on others to pay their way. I don’t bring up money here because I feel it’s vulgar,but I’ll make an exception in your case since you are likely an able bodied young man who could get off your ass and contribute to society and choose to ride your parents’ couch and let us all pay your way. My parter and I make a very good living. Not 1 percent, but we’re comfortable {you’d be suprised what a bartender can make if they’re willing to bust their ass, admittedley a foreign concept to you}. We get what we have by working very hard, sometimes 7 days a week. We do it because we want to earn a living without having to rely on anyone but ourselves. Honestly, I’m not mad at you for myself, because honestly you’ll never get to live the life I live unless you change your ways and because I could give less than half a shit about parasites like you, but you do piss me off because there are a ton of hard working people who struggle every day to support themselves and their families by their hard work and have their hard earned money confiscated so the government can support worthless leaches like you. I know there are people who genuinely need assistance and I don’t begrudge them that ,but people like you make me sick. Take a shower, deflate your Ron Paul blow up doll and go out and earn a fucking living. Then see why we all think you are such a fool

That my dear Poppa is all that anyone needs to know. It is VERY EASY for small countries with small populations (in Europe) or small populations in large countries (like Australia) to have free stuffs and high salaries and having them not mind paying exhorbitant prices for things that shouldnt be exhorbitant. One thing that I have realized is that these countries have or will at some point if not yet have stringent and I mean stringent legal immigration and will if not yet crack down on illegal immigration. Once the numbers of population goes up it is IMPOSSIBLE to have the goodies they have.

Hey Alien, it’s not that I’m disdainful, I’m cynical. Nothing unions do for a group of workers is better than what those same workers couldn’t do for themselves. I don’t trust the motives of unions and never have. They are a political force and always have been. Union have never really been in the business of helping labor, they just say so, so the less politically refined will follow the union’s lead. Unions are and have always been about brute force and power. They are the intimidation arm and street army of socialism, nothing more. They are the knuckle draggers, the bone breakers, the assault forces of the effete privileged class who want theirs and yours aw well. Nothing but spoiled brats in grown-ups’ bodies!

OK Crowley, let me explain something to you.
Do you ever wonder why I am so hard on you?
It’s not for entertainment purposes.
You are a young and able bodied adult that sits home and collects government aid. You have no excuse for not going out and doing something, anything, to earn a paycheck. You live with your parents, so your expenses aren’t so high that you can’t live on minimum wage while you try for something better.

I am a 53 year old man that has 2 collapsed and bulging discs, and stenosis in my neck (military service conected), I also have scoliosis, stenosis in my lower back, bursitis in both shoulders, tendonitis in both elbows, carpal tunnel in both hands, sciatica, bad knees, arthritis, high blood pressure, and diabetes, yet I go out and work as much as my body will allow me to 6 days a week.
I have a mortgage and the associated tax and insurance expenses, as well as utility bills, food bills, and I also am caretaker for my father in law that has dementia. So, with all this, I am still paying for you to sit home and be an annoying ass.
Do you see why I am angry with you?

I could actually retire, under California’s stupid pension system, but I like working, and I like paying my bills. I have never had a handout from any government agency, never been unemployed, sometimes in my younger days had two jobs. Hell I worked for Servicemaster cleaning floors and bathrooms in Government buildings, and doing that while I had a full time job during the day. Everything I got I paid for. Never once did I sit on my ass and piss and moan about how big corporations did not redistributed their wealth to me while I sat on my ass and complained. Both my wife and I worked since we were young to get ahead. Crowley is just too frickin’ stupid to figure that out, He will always be a bitchy, whiny, pussy who complains about everyone else while doing NOTHING to change his own situation. And from what I read, he has NO right to bitch, he has NO life experience and no job prospects. F*ck him and the couch he rode in on. He is nothing more than Sandra Fluke with outdoor plumbing.

No one that works at a fast food for very long has the skills to do something else. Ppl that have skills to do other work do not stay on fast food work for very long. It is not meant to be a long term career, therefore it shouldn’t be high paying. I could be wrong. Am I wrong? Salaries should take into account the amount of education you got, where you got it, if you went and got MORE education, the applied skills and the ability to learn new skills and apply those, the motivation at work and the ability to maintain AND excel the work goals. Am I wrong? Those who become MANAGERS at those fast food joints should definetly be paid more than the normal workers as their responsibilities, ability to do every other job and train others and skills are higher than the rest, that is understandable. I just think that people need to have a true assessment of their skills before demanding more money on menial jobs. I am not a snob, I would work a fast food joint while I am getting the skills to do something else, just saying it is not the type of job that people should be paid high salaries, it will only invite less skilled workforce to increase.

Actually in prior blogs he said he was a census taker for a couple weeks, he is unemployed and living on government assistance with Mommy. He seems to be proud of that, So he is trying to lecture us on Corporate greed and how wonderful Ron Paul is while sitting at home all day.

If someone has got something to say, I accept it, especially when they have the life experience to back it up, with him he is some kind of sick little pervert who gets off on getting a reaction on this website. and I am his enabler apparently.

Once a long time ago I kinda used what was written to profile a certain no-mind blogger who shall remain nameless otherwise it will return like Satan on Saturday night at the nudie bar.

Anyway you can kinda pick up quirks and behavior patterns from postings, just my guess after a couple hundred hours of profile training, he is only here to do exactly what I said, he gets some kind of creep sexual gratification from responses, it’s like obsessive compulsive behavior, only sexual. He posts inane shit to get a reaction which makes him feel powerful and possibly aroused. That’s why I have been referring to him as Creepy Crowley. Look at the pattern of appearances, he posts a couple comments,, gets a bunch of response and disappears for a while, then the process repeats itself.

I will spare everyone the details, but trust me, he is getting some kind of satisfaction from this and is probably already on some kind of probation (hence living at home) and unable to gain employment since most companies are not comfortable hiring a person with “quirks”.

It’s also possible that is the reason his “career” with the U.S. census folks didn’t last very long….Food for thought.

Yeah I recall the current joblessness and the census work. Just haven’t gotten a good sense if he’s in school, or what effort he’s making to better himself. Sometimes you gotta take the minimum wage job, just to get off your duff, get some dignity back, gain contacts, get back into the world. Maybe the speculation about a record ain’t far off. Sure hope not

Well, I’m glad to see “regulars” have held down the fort while I’ve been off fighting a few “R/L” battles. lol

I also see there are a crop of “new and improved” navel gazers, who believe the world is a better place as long as the govenment (which is actually us) continues to provide them with food and a comfortable couch on which to dwell and pontificate.

Damn shame about the election, though. Goes to show that there are a greater number of “them” than “us” who believe that everyone deserves a shiny and expensive trophy, no matter how well they did, or didn’t, participate in the game of U.S. citizenship. What’s hardest for me to accept is that it is “us”- the workers, the homeowners, property holders, small business folks and the industrialists combined who have provided them with the rope with which we will all surely hang in the not too distant future. Somehow we have allowed a self-serving bureaucracy to couple with an inadequate education system to produce an ever growing legion of dullards who belive they deserve “better” or “best” simply because they exist.

How this happened is no great surprise, as we toiled to provide things n’ stuff to a generation (or two) which has never risked anything to obtain the great rewards of security, which they truly believe should be easily and instantly provided. The dullards we’ve foisted upon the general public truly belive in their head and their heart that flipping a burger or stocking a shelf is as integral and important as any profession you can name. They know nothing of “step stones” or “entry level” as these easily obtained jobs are well worth the admission to middle-class society, and these are the only jobs to which they aspire or to which their dulled sense of worth can achieve.

Sad, really. Much like a drunk or drug addict, they’ll have to hit bottom before the reality of life strikes their well addled brains. Too bad the rest of us will be “collateral damage” when the proverbial shit hits the fan.

yup, he’s a good’n…but he’s been gone so long I was worried something unthinkable might have happened to him. (like shot in the line of duty or something)…glad it wasn’t the case to say the least.
